Here at SYRCL, we seriously love our jobs! That's because our mission is to preserve, protect and advocate for the Yuba River, and there is no place better loved by its community. We are so excited to be working as a team to coordinate the 19th annual Yuba River Cleanup, not only because the Yuba River is special to all of us, but because the Cleanup brings together so many local businesses, organizations, schools and volunteers of all ages to rally to protect the river and its watershed. And by cleaning up the Yuba River, we'll be helping to save hundreds of wild animals -- river otters, turtles, salmon, ospreys and eagles -- from deadly human debris, like six pack rings, plastic bags, shards of glass, and other nasty garbage.
Last year more than 700 volunteers pulled out 7.5 TONS of garbage! This year our team is raising money to support the Cleanup and the River Ambassador program. Our staff is reaching out to our friends and family so we can get the financial support to keep this great program going all year long. It would mean a lot if you'd help out!
